Man faces hate crime charges over racist Puerto Rico shirt rant

Man faces hate crime charges over racist Puerto Rico shirt rant

But the Forest Preserves of Cook County announced on Twitter that Connor decided instead to leave the preserves' police force, which he had served since 2006. Forest preserve officials said they are not going to sweep this under the rug and they plan to use this case and video as a learning tool going forward.

The woman, identified as Mia Irizarry, recorded incident on her cell phone at Caldwell Woods in June. The recording, taken by the woman involved, shows a man, identified by the police as Timothy Trybus, demanding to know why she has a Puerto Rican flag shirt on and whether the woman, Mia Irizarry, is a USA citizen. "The world is not going to change the United State of America".

Trybus, who was intoxicated at the time, approached Irizarry because she was wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt.

Later she says: "Officer, I feel entirely uncomfortable, can you remove ... please officer" as the officer is seen walking away from her.

Irizarry asked why Connor would tell her brother to get back while allowing the aggressive outsider to continue to approach Irizarry and insult her.

Timothy Trybus, 62, of Des Plaines was charged with two felony counts of committing a hate crime in addition to the misdemeanour counts of assault and disorderly conduct he already faced, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office said.

He has been charged with disorderly conduct and assault. "I really do believe there are people who say to themselves, 'If Trump can do it, I can do it".

But once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life". I just hope they can do it tonight". "Even their defenders are outstanding players".

And, while most police officers would have done the right thing in that incident, this guy was caught on tape doing the wrong thing, or more accurately, doing nothing, at all. But Conner resigned before investigators could ask him what happened during a disciplinary hearing, Pope said at a news conference Thursday. "We are looking at ways to improve all aspects of employee training", said Cook County Forest Preserves General Superintendent Arnold Randall.

More officers then arrive at the scene and a female cop sits Trybus down and threatens to charge him.

Connor was initially placed on desk duty as the investigation got underway. The video, posted on Facebook, has been viewed more than 1.2 million times.

"All people are welcome in the Forest Preserves of Cook County and no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves", the district said on its official account.

The incident was condemned by Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, who said he was "appalled, shocked and disturbed" by the officer's behavior. "People have just as much right to be here as you and, when you're drunk, you don't belong here". We can not allow those who do not understand America's greatness to terrorize people due to their background. "Are you a United States citizen?"

I showed my official ID as a Member of Congress, to which the officer said, "I don't think so", indicating that she thought my ID was a fake and that I couldn't possibly be a Member of Congress.
